You Choose the Coverage
Whole house generators are available in a variety of sizes, enabling you to select a generator that powers all of your home’s normal functions, or just the essentials. Installation will require an electrician in Fort Worth, Texas due to the various electrical installations required.
Portable generators can power a window air conditioner, recharge a freezer or refrigerator, power lamps and an oxygen concentrator, or a basic life support system such as a ventilator, though not all at once. The price is often reasonable, and they typically operate on gasoline or diesel.
The disadvantages of a portable are the limited number of outlets to power necessities. A typical portable will have from two to four 110v outlets and one 220v outlet. An additional disadvantage is the need to use heavy-duty extension cords, which provide the hazard of persons tripping over cords, and shock if the cords are located in a wet environment.
Portables also have the disadvantage of the fuel supply, and the problems with the available fuel. When your fuel supply is exhausted, will you be able to obtain additional fuel? Furthermore, available fuel contains ethanol and does not store well for long, before the ethanol converts to water. Ethanol containing fuel will clog, and can damage the engine’s carburetor.
You should crank a portable generator and allow it to run for a few minutes every week or two. An automatic whole house generator does this automatically, and does not rely upon ethanol containing fuel, as it uses natural or propane gas.
A whole house generator provides the ideal solution when you expect a reliable electrical source. If you are considering the installation of a whole house generator contact a Tioga electrician in Fort Worth, Texas for an estimate, and/or installation.
